Departure Time

7:00 AM
Honored as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1988, Daintree National Park is a great destination for sampling the exceptional biodiversity of the Wet Tropics of Queensland. Your full-day adventure begins with pickup at your Cairns or Port Douglas hotel and a scenic drive north along the rugged Coral Sea coast.

Your first stop is Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, an eco-park where you can observe the unique wildlife of Australia’s rain forest, wetlands, and grasslands. Browse the well-designed habitats to observe cassowaries, koalas, crocodiles, kangaroos, and wallabies. 

Continue on to Mossman Gorge on the southern border of Daintree National Park. Take a guided nature walk through the rain forest, keeping an eye out for native species like the Ulysses butterfly and Boyd's forest dragon. Observe the lush landscape from platforms above the Mossman River and learn about the customs of local Kuku Yalanji people.

Cross the Daintree River on a ferry, and make your way to Cape Tribulation. Admire spectacular views from Mt. Alexandra Lookout, where you can see all the way to the Great Barrier Reef on a clear day. At the Cape Tribulation Beach House, stop for a delicious lunch featuring your choice of steak, locally-caught barramundi or a vegetarian option.

After lunch, enjoy leisure time to stroll along the white sandy beaches and boardwalk at Cape Tribulation, swim in a nearby tropical pool or take a dip in the Coral Sea (depending on the season).

Finally, take a cruise along the Daintree River, where you can spot saltwater crocodiles, reptiles, exotic birds and butterflies that make their home in the mangrove wetlands. On the return drive south, make one last stop at Rex Lookout before your full-day tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

The wildlife habitat in Port Douglas was the best part of his tour. We didn't actually walk thru the Daintree forest just drove thru. Spent alot of time on the bus with the aircon.

Our tour guide, Gavin, was the best!!! He was jovial, very knowledgeable of everything to relay to us the visitors! He stopped and pointed out many sites and engaged us as a group to learn and ask anything we needed to know. We were able to see and experience many wonderful animals, flora, and history of the land. Kudos to Gavin! Thank you so much a most fantastical day!

This tour was well beyond my expectations. The stops on the itinerary were all interesting and informative. The tour guide was personable and knowledgeable. Also, the weather was amazing the day we went. We saw a Boyd’s Forest Dragon, a cassowary, and two salt water crocodiles in the wild! The tour even ran 15 minutes ahead of schedule in the morning due to a small group and everyone being on time.

Saw many wonderful things. It was a very thorough tour. Our tour guide/driver knew a lot about the plants and animals and history of the rain forest. He did drive home the danger of Crocodiles far too much. Too many grizzly stories. He also did a lot of non tour talking like criticizing drivers. If he could curb those things it would have been perfect.

The guide Steve was very knowledgeable and nice. He pointed us many small animals we would not see ourselves such as insects, spiders and baby sharks. At the end of the tour, we left our camcorder on the bus but Steve found it and left at the office for us to pick up. We appreciate it a lot.

This tour was great, and our tour guide made it an even better experience. He was enthusiastic and incredibly knowledgeable. He showed us (and demonstrated) so many things in the rainforest, it was such a fun experience. He even went out of his way to show us things that weren't technically on the tour, but were incredible and made us feel so lucky to see. Highly recommended!

If your time is limited in Cairns this is a great way to see a lot in a short amount of time. You could use a little more time at the animal sanctuary but other than that this tour is perfectly timed out. Cape Tribulation is beautiful! The guide was very good and knew a lot about the history of the area, as well as was an expert at pointing out specific vegetation and wildlife. I highly recommend this tour!
